UPDATE!  The application for the removal of the statue of Emmeline Pankhurst from Victoria Tower Gardens was withdrawn following a very large number of objections and considerable press coverage.

This statue was commissioned by the women who worked with her and its position next to Parliament is symbolic of her significance in British history.  It is planned that after she is relocated to Regents University in Regents Park, a larger statue of her be placed in Canning Green, at the back of Parliament Square, but we are still not happy and do not want to lose this particular statue in its current position.  Read our objection letter on our Planning page and CLICK HERE to leave your own comment on WCC's website.
